Sandplay Therapy: Not Just for Children


Fun and powerfully informative


I have been wanting to attend the Symbols and Sandplay training for a while so was pleased when I saw this webinar. ... it gave me a good understanding of the theoretical underpinning and a good overview of the process. As well as some ideas to use. Your slides and activities were paced well and kept me engaged.... The breakout rooms were great. Once again Thank you L.G.


A well run course with lots of information. The use of technology for small break out groups was excellent. The speaker was knowledgeable and an excellent presenter. I highly recommend this training as a taster for Sand-tray work. AC

The best part of the webinar was gaining an insight into how to integrate sandplay into my existing therapeutic approach. VG

Webinar Description

90-minute webinar

Sandplay allows for the projective expression of one's personal inner world. Hear how to respectfully invite the creation of miniature scenes and stories that help clients see, know and change.

Sandplay is a powerful therapeutic method that has been around for nearly 100 years. It is a form of therapy that gives both child and adult clients the opportunity to portray, rather than verbalise, feelings and experiences often inaccessible and/or difficult to express. Its origins were in the work of Jung and Kalff who were analytically orientated. Current research has demonstrated successful use in shorter term, strengths-based approaches. In the free and protected space provided by the counsellor, a client creates a concrete manifestation of his or her inner world using sand, water, and miniature objects.


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar you will be able to:


1) Understand what Sandplay is and how it can work

2) Identify the theoretical basis of working with symbols (including Jungian, Narrative, Humanist, Gestalt perspectives)

3) Have considered the evidence for effectiveness

4) Have had an experience with this method
